a. What is this project about?
This project features and depicts the the rise and downfall of Lady Macbeth. It displays her manipulative behavior, self-harm, and eventual demise in a fast paced form. It is the creative extension of my original character analysis and depicts how I see her in a multimedia form.
b. What was your process like in crafting the creative portion of this project?
The process for this project was tireless. It took several days/hours to concept, revise and complete the art work and depictions of the characters. I originally chose the black and white, comic-styled, look, as inspiration from the Macbeth movie we saw. Like the yellowish, dull undertone of the movie, black and white gives a subdued and bleached look which I thought would be perfect for Lady Macbeth.
c. What difficulties did you encounter in doing this project? How did you overcome them?
One of the main difficulties was constantly changing my mind about things. For the outline of this project, I had so many ideas and didn't realize it would take so much time until I did them. I also had to get rid and redo things that wouldn't work. This constantly happened until I just decided to stick to a revamped version of my idea.
d. What are you most proud of in this project? Why?
If I had more time, I would have chose a different medium/style to draw in.
e. What would you change/do differently if given the chance?
If I had more time, I would have chose a different medium/style to draw in.
f. What did you learn from your colleagues' presentations/projects?
My classmates individually view each character different and portrayed them in a different volume. They also each had their own vision of how to present the story.
g. What did you learn about yourself as a result of doing this project?
I tend to sympathize with the antagonist the most. This is mostly likely because I was able to see past their flaws, especially in Lady Macbeth's case. I realized that even the most bad people are still human. That even if they are considered "evil", they are just as fragile on the inside as everyone else.
For my creative I have two different parts to it.The first part I have a mini story of Lady Macbeth's point of view of everything. I added details that talk about her childhood, and how she met Macbeth. It gives more story/detail to Lady Macbeth. Shakespeare really didn’t give background on Macbeth or Lady Macbeth. I like knowing a little bit about the character and they because who they were. The second part I made a short film of what I wrote in the story. The film has pictures in it. The film also adds dramatization to the 6 quotes I had in my Lady Macbeth Essay. This is the little kid in me but I love pictures. The book has to be really good for me not to care about the book having pictures or not. Some points in the book needed pictures, the scene with the witches would be ten times better if there was a picture of them dancing. Creating the video was a little hard. You want to make sure it’s not too long where the people won’t want to see it. It also takes a while to make an iMovie so it takes time and patience. The hardest part was trying to find the perfect background music. I wanted to do something from Scotland. It’s rare that you find nice bagpipes that won’t kill your ears. I finally found a song on iTunes that was perfect. The worst part was edit the movie because not everything goes the way you want it. Overall I'm proud of my work, I think I did a good job on it. I’m most proud of the pictures for the quotes. My original idea was to have my friend pose as the pictures but that didn’t work. So I drew one picture I found some and added the quotes. I love the quotes I think some of them are really deep.
If I could change my project I would want to use a calmer version of the bagpipe music. I would also like my friends to act out the quotes. That would be so cool to use diffrent people to see how they felt the quotes should look like. I’m still new to using iMovie so Tiarra helped a lot. When I watched her movie it gave me ideas to how to make my movie better. The projects from orange stream are really creative. From viewing their projects I learned new things from each person. I didn’t know that some people were artistically creative like that. What I took away from this essay is I love to free write. Doing my creative part I love making up stories, about people. using iMovie was hard but I like to experience new things, someday it might come in handy.
Art not without ambition, but without the illness that should attend it:
the snake (which represents cunning) is still in the cage. This means that he is still loyal and can restrain himself from taking action
No, this my hand will rather the multitudinous seas incarnadine, making the green one red:
The snake is out of the cage and rising up to the crown. The door to the cage was opened when he killed the man who he had sworn loyalty to. From here the action only escalates. This quote is also displayed in how the paint starts off green at the bottom and slowly turns red. I chose to do this because the green represents peace and safety, but just like in the play the green is contaminated by the red (which stands for danger).
To be thus is nothing, But to be safely thus:
The snake has almost reached the crown. At this point Macbeth reveals that he will do anything to maintain his powerful position, even if that does mean harming more than one life.
When our actions do not, our fears do make us traitors:
The snake is now at the crown and is beginning to coil itself around it. This represents how protective he is of his power, he has gone through much bloodshed and the cunning has already taken full control at this point there is no shame in killing for his own cause. He became a traitor long ago and now feels no guilt.
Those he commands move only in command, nothing in love:
The snake has a firm grip on the crown and is in position to attack anything that threatens him. At this point in the play Macbeth doesn’t even care about being loved and admired, he gave up on that in the very beginning. He destroyed all respect for him when he killed one who was only good to him and Macbeth knows that. Now he is prepared for battle and he will stop at nothing.
It took a bit of plan on how I wanted to display my ideas on paper. I knew from the beginning what the basic idea was but it I had to keep adjusting it to see how to involve the quotes. In the end I set it up like a timeline. Adding the quotes confused me in the beginning because I did not want then to distract from the painting itself. I turned it into a timeline so that it was easy to see the different stages. I am proud of how I involved symbolism that displays Macbeth's conscious well. For example how the green is contaminated by red. Green representing safety and growth, red representing bloodshed and danger. If I had a chance to change it I would simply spend more time working on it because I would like to touch up certain aspects of it. Maybe even try using multiple mediums . I learned many different styles of presentation. I learned the importance of not being to concise, yet being engaging at the same time. making sure to clearly explain the connection between your project and your papers thesis is extremely important.In my presentation I felt confident in what I was saying. I was proud of my work and I believe that that showed in how I was able to explain the choices I made. Usually I am not as confident in work because I am not as enthusiastic about it. I am glad that I chose a project that interested me.
